Your Artisanal Cheese and Craft Beer Tailgating or Bus Riding Picks of the Week

The theme is Delmarva, courtesy of Chapel's Country Creamery and Dogfish Head Brewery. Holly Foster lives on a farm in Talbot County. About three and a half years ago, she took a week-long cheesemaking course at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, and when she returned home she started making...

The New Threads, and the Fashion Show

I'll be honest, when I got the e-mail promising that last night's fashion show would feature "Wizards players, wives and families modeling the new team gear," I had pretty elaborate visions of catwalks and strutting player and sashaying wives and maybe some commentary from Heidi Klum. And when, before the...

Gold Unis: Your Thoughts?

Ok, a Bog challenge. We're running a box in tomorrow's paper with some fashion thoughts about the Wizards new alternate road jerseys, which can be seen here. We already have several strong reviewers (Caron Butler, Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion critic Robin Givhan, a well-dressed former Hecht's salesman I met last night),...

Should Practices Be Open to the Media?

This is a perpetual battle between media members and sports teams, and the latest skirmish popped up in our area this week. Maryland's leading tackler Wesley Jefferson wore a non-contact jersey during Wednesday's practice, but media members were asked not to mention that fact. The Baltimore Sun, obviously, did not...

What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 300 Words

The big news: Team Turquoise unveil new alternate road uniforms. Here's a bizarrely serious story on the subject, and here's a Post photo, while the Wiz offer a photo gallery from the fashion show and a blogger calls Etan Thomas "delicious man candy." But seriously, a WashTimes source says there's...

Agent Zero's Video Game Minions

Just talked to Dave Walsh, aka Walshy, one of Gilbert Arenas's sponsored video gamers. Walshy is the 22-year-old captain of Final Boss, a former student at Grand Rapids Community College who now makes well into the six figures and hangs out with NBA superstars because he's bloody good at video...

Verizon Center Security Guards Vote: No More DCU Coverage

I'm encouraging reader feedback about which teams I should be spending my time with. More Caps? More Wizards? More Hoyas? Less United? Tell me. Like yesterday, at the phone booth, a security guard stopped me, and told me how much he liked my blog, except for one thing: too much...

The Horn Man Blows

So frequent Bog commenter Wise Girls-DC sent me to interview this guy at last night's Caps game who spends much of the game tooting on a long black horn, which doesn't look exactly like this or these, but pretty close. The approximate sound is BRRREMP!!! BRRREMP!!! BRRREMP!!!, which is followed...

Dead Animals and Caps Fans

The great thing about doing a sports blog is you go where the stories are, without any preconceived assignments, and thus you can quickly change directions when events warrant. Which is why I just spent way too much time this morning staring at RoadkillRampage, a site which warns viewers away...

Terps Go Dancing (there's something new)

A poster accurately noted that my attempt to make an NCAA-tournament related joke about the Terps not dancing this season (at Midnight Madness) failed miserably, because the Terps actually danced. A lot. There are several clips roaming around the Internet, including a few shots of the team's "Thriller" montage, which...

What You Need to Know

Please read this morning's links, including Dr. Z's description of the MNF crew as "Moe, Larry and Curly," while listening to the ballad of Joe Theismann. Brunell gives a non-answer on his job status but says Sunday is a must-win. An NFL source says the Skins have many plays but...

Gary Williams: "Go Eagles"

And no, he wasn't talking about the American Eagles, his former prides and joys. Just when you thought this man could not possibly handle the local public relations battle with greater aplomb, some kids bait him into declaring his affections for the Philadelphia Eagles and then put the footage on...

Joe Gibbs's Weekly Spiritual Game Plan

A lot of folks around the country look forward to Thursdays, because that's when Clinton Portis dresses up, or at least, when he used to dress up. I look forward to Thursdays, because that's when we get the next installment of Joe Gibbs's Weekly Spiritual Game Plan. All season, Gibbs...

The media starlets at StopShuler.com have posted video of Heath Shuler promising potential voters that he will do their bidding to his maximum biological capabilities, plus an extra 10 percent granted to him, presumably from supernatural means, except for one thing: not on Sundays. Sundays are for him and his...

T-Rex on Mike Tyson

Believe it or not, there's some weirdness attached to Mike Tyson's exhibition tour, which starts this weekend. I know, crazy, right? Tyson's fighting Corey "T-Rex" Sanders in Youngstown, Ohio on Friday night, and maybe beyond. Gary "Digital" Williams has been all over this story, and has posted photos of T-Rex...

Here's the Case for Campbell, who says he's "hungry to want to play." One step at a time, I guess. The Skins admit they're completely confused, and Portis wants the game on his shoulders and refers to himself in the third person. Dan likes it. Colts new addition Booger McFarland...

Sabres Slug Sales Skyrocket. Seriously.

At a minimum, this ought to get me linked on Buffalo Sabres blogs. So it turns out that after all the complaining about the Sabres new logo, which was widely compared to a slug and Donald Trump's hair and which spawned a Web site and more than 30,000 signatures, people...

Why I'm Right About the Vegas Poll

TerpSpeak, in Paraphrase

Continuing my run as "least effective reporter-slash-blogger in recent memory," I've again managed to "tape" 90 minutes worth of material on a tape recorder with no batteries, although the recording makes a lovely humming sound when you press play. In this case, the purported interviewees were members of the Maryland...

Injustice at United Awards Night

Hoyas on the Best Local Team, plus Mason Nuggets

Here's something interesting; when you ask the guys on Georgetown who the best local college basketball team is, they immediately start comparing themselves to George Mason. George Mason! Then, with a little prodding, they might talk about Maryland. G-Dub never comes up. Now, this might be a special circumstance, because...

The Burgundy and Gold Mood Around Town

Not having been sated by the previously mentioned 7,825 words of Redskins coverage in this morning's paper, I figured I'd ride the Metro around for two or three hours in random directions and try to figure out what's going on with this team. I discovered that there are several schools...

Don't Lose Faith in Those Redskins, Necessarily

[Edit: actual number of words has been upped to 7,825. I forgot Boz.] After reading the 7,825 words of Redskins coverage in The Washington Post this morning, I was still left wondering how frequently 2-4 teams make the playoffs. (The 7,825 figure doesn't include headlines, photo captions, bylines or agate...
